Nugent Exercises His First Amendment Right… Army Soldiers Get Punished

By: Andrea Ryan

So much for Freedom of Speech.

Ted Nugent has been removed from his scheduled concert performance to entertain our Army soldiers in Fort Knox.  Even though the Secret Service determined that recent remarks the musician made regarding the president did not violate any laws, our Obama-led government still decided to mete out its own Obama-style punishment.  Never mind the ones being punished are our soldiers.

According to CNN,

It’s lights out on Ted Nugent’s scheduled performance at an Army base in Kentucky.

Commanders at Fort Knox have decided against allowing the “Motor City Madman” to take the stage at the base in June, the latest fallout over Nugent’s comments that he would be “dead or in jail” if President Barack Obama were re-elected.

“After learning of opening act Ted Nugent’s recent public comments about the president of the United States, Fort Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance on the installation,” according to an announcement posted Saturday on the base’s Facebook page.

The concert at the base is part of the “Midwest Rock n’ Roll Express” tour featuring co-headliners Nugent, REO Speedwagon and Styx.

Better to punish the soldiers than have Obama’s ego bruised.  It’s an Obama world.
